A damn sight more comfortable on the posterior than a Land Cruiser. Hopefully Land Rover will release the new Defender at some point instead of concentrating on Chelsea tractors

Oh wow that is an amazing story of a “believe it or not” a well loved & looked after vintage motor, despite the mud & hornets nest! Well done to Saul for reconditioning her so lovingly!

Thanks Amy, very nostalgic especially as 1948 is the year of my birth. Ask Duncs if he remembers Dave taking us to the “rangers shooting range” for their first lesson in holding a gun. It was the BB Jeep that we traveled in, circa 1988/9. Ian

Wow! Yet again, Londolozi shows how it is such a rich history maker. I sure hope LandRover reads this!

Wonderful story and so nice to see the BB Jeep restored to her original beauty. At lot of history remembered there surrounding one Land Rover…so lovely to hear. I especially enjoyed the pictures of the Varty family in 1997 and again in 2007 and today, and all with the same big smiles…they really capture their happiness. Thank you for sharing this story and great pictures.
